About the property

4 bedroom, 3.5 bathroom, updated kitchen + large family dining and living room.

We invite you to enjoy our family's home and make it your own for a wonderful Sonoma wine country getaway.

Located in the heart of Sonoma Valley wine country, Glen Ellen is a charming town with two magical parks, incredible restaurants, and only minutes from many world-class wineries.

Our home, lovingly called The Williams Retreat, is the perfect place for you to experience everything that California wine country has to offer.

Our home is only a 5 minute walk to the Glen Ellen Market where you can stock up on everything you'll need for a winery picnic or a meal cooked in our newly renovated kitchen. Also in walking distance are many top, five-star, local restaurants. We're only a 15 minute drive to downtown Sonoma and 30 minutes to downtown Napa. Less than an hour to San Francisco and the Sonoma Coast.

Our gorgeous and light-filled two-story home sleeps 8 people comfortably in four bedrooms -- 1 king bed, 2 queen beds and 2 twin beds.

The living room has a vaulted ceiling and is a great place for everyone to relax after long days of exploring the region or to enjoy a movie on our 50' HDTV.

Our recently renovated kitchen is open, spacious and fully stocked! It's perfect for every meal which you can enjoy in our large dining room, our outdoor picnic table or even at the kitchen bar!

We have a propane BBQ on our brand new deck with a table ready for your picnic and a lounge area for you to enjoy a glass of wine in the evening!

Start your day with a cup of coffee or enjoy a glass of wine at the end of the day on the front porch on our comfortable redwood chairs.

About Angelo and Julie Santiago

Julie and Angelo are recent newlyweds that have lived in the SF Bay Area for more than 7 years. Very early on they fell in love with Glen Ellen and knew that they wanted to own a little piece of that paradise. After a lot of hard work and lots of planing, their dream became a reality.

Angelo works as a Firefighter in the Bay Area and Julie is a Personal Life Coach for women aspiring to attain happiness in all aspects of their life.

Both are transplants to the area -- Julie born and raised in Louisiana and Angelo born in Brazil and grew up in Maryland. Their paths first crossed at the Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore, MD and later in San Francisco.

Angelo and Julie Santiago purchased this house in 2014

Why Angelo and Julie Santiago chose Sonoma County

We love Glen Ellen. Its the perfect place for us and we think it will be for you too. Its a quiet, little town but close to everything you need. You can enjoy the outdoors at Jack London State Park, taste wines at some of the best wineries in the region, eat at some of the best restaurants in the country and drive to San Francisco as a day trip.

We bought this home because we want to share it with our friends -- and YOU!!!

We had a great time staying at Angelo and Julies home. The house is large and spacious, the rooms are also very generous in size.

The owners are very accomodating and understanding and they have done a great job stocking up the house with everything you would need.

Highly recommend staying here.

Great place for a family gathering

  • 5 of 5

It was a pleasure to stay at Angelo and Julie's home. We were in the area for our daughter's wedding and had our adult children and significant others with us. The home was perfect for us all, and was exactly as portrayed and expected. Thank you Angelo and Julie for their hospitality and communication leading up to, and following our stay.

Hidden gem!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at this property in Glen Ellen! Just enough off of the beaten path to be idyllic but close enough to wonderful restaurants and wineries to make our stay super easy! We thoroughly enjoyed walking to dinner each night: Averting, Glen Ellen Star and the Glen Ellen Inn. Loved them all. Highly recommend Imagery Winery. The house was clean and offered wonderful space for 4 couples. Great outdoor seating area as well. We definitely recommend this property.
